In the context of its 7th annual 'Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development,' the European Union has approved funding in excess of 10 million Euros for the thin film solar cell project 'Scalenano' through 2015.
Whether your electric vehicle has two or four wheels, the chances are that it runs on a lithium-ion battery. LMU researchers have developed a more efficient matrix for storing electrical energy, based on a novel lithium titanate nanostructure.
A team of researchers from Greece and Spain have managed to synthesize silver nanoparticles, which are of great interest thanks to their application in biotechnology, by using strawberry tree leaf extract. The new technology is ecological, simple, cheap and very fast.
Cornell researchers have developed a new method of generating terahertz signals on an inexpensive silicon chip, offering possible applications in medical imaging, security scanning and wireless data transfer.
Sixteen middle-school students received a unique firsthand look at the exciting world of nanotechnology when they attended Summer NanoCamp at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering (CNSE) of the University at Albany on July 10, part of a collaboration between CNSE and the Children's Museum of Science and Technology (CMOST).
Researchers have provided the first atomic-scale insights into the ferroelectric properties of nanocrystals. This information will be critical for development of the next generation of nonvolatile data storage devices.
Researchers have developed an entirely new logic circuit family based on magnetic semiconductor devices. The advance could lead to logic circuits up to 1 million times more power-efficient than today's.
The Nanotechnology Signature Initiative (NSI) Nanotechnology for Sensors and Sensors for Nanotechnology: Improving and Protecting Health, Safety, and the Environment is the fifth NSI to be launched by agencies of the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI).
Researchers in Thailand have developed an electronic nose (NanoNose) to help local food industry in areas related to standardizing smell, which is one of the key sensory perceptions for the food industry.
